POLL: Who do you think will win today’s World Hurdle at Cheltenham?

Today’s feature race has been billed as “The Lady and the Champ” as Annie Power sets out to topple Big Buck’s.

YESTERDAY WAS LADIES Day but one very special mare is out to make sure the boys don’t have it all their own way on day three at the Cheltenham Festival.

Over £150,000 is on offer to the winner of today’s feature race, the three-mile Ladbrokes World Hurdle, which goes to post at 3.20pm.

It’s shaping up to be a showdown between Willie Mullins’ unbeaten mare Annie Power, who looks set to go off as a short-priced favourite, and the four-time winner of this race, the legendary Big Buck’s.

AP McCoy has a chance to break his festival duck on At Fishers Cross while JP McManus’s other runner, More of That, has solid claims under the in-form Barry Geraghty.

Or could it be a big day for Mouse Morris’s Rule the World or one of the other Paul Nicholls’ contenders: Zarkandar, Salubrious and Celestial Halo?

Who do you think will win?
